I have a 6mm collloid cyst on third ventricle. I have severe frontal headaches and dizziness. Should I be worried?

I hope you have seen: A neurosurgeon. Colloid cysts are benign tumors but if they obstruct the openings of the 3rd ventricle they can cause rapid death. It can be sudden. In most cases they do not obstruct the ventricle but I would recommend you see a neurosurgeon who will follow you carefully and have to operate when he or she feels it is most beneficial for yu.

Get dizziness and bad frontal headache everytime I stand up. I do have low blood pressure. But could this be symptoms of something serious?

Better with lying?: If it is completely better with lying down, it may be a symptom of intracranial hypotension. While this is not a serious condition, it is a problem with have a headache whenever you stand. It it is definitely positional in nature, you will want to explain this to a doctor who can see you in person and help you get the right treatment for it.

Sleep: Morning grogginess and morning headaches can commonly be seen with sleep apnea (sometimes other sleep disorders, too.) not all sleep apnea suffers are overweight, short-necked men!) there are times that caffeine withdrawal, or some other substance withdrawal, can have a similar effect. Consider seeing a sleep specialist. Read more

32 y/o fem. Had negative MRI last yr w/2 mm frontal lobe lesion. Now having dull, VERY brief headaches, nausea, &dizziness. Should I have follow up MRI?

32 y/o fem. Had negative MRI last yr w/2 mm frontal lobe lesion. Now having dull, VERY brief headaches, nausea, &dizziness. Should I have follow up MRI?

I would say no: A 2mm frontal lesion is probably incidental. I would not expect it to cause brief headaches and dizziness. If you have a follow up MRI, it would be to see if there was any change to this incidental lesion. That is not likely. Read more

I have had headaches for 2 months, everyday. No other symptoms but gets worse when I put in my contacts. Frontal headache. What could it be?

Chronic daily HA's: Can't say, from your information if migraine or tension, and triggers besides contacts not expressed, but meets criteria of chronic daily headaches and pattern needs to be broken up. You could try topirimate or divalproex sodium, but maybe could employ riboflavin or CoQ-10. Stop all analgesics, especially tylenol (acetaminophen) which can perpetuate pattern. Maybe find neurologist. Read more

Please what causes one to wake up sometime at night with a severe frontal headache. Thank you.?

Worrisome...: If a headache is bad enough to awaken you from your sleep, or is very severe, whether frontal or other part of scalp (there are no pain fibers in the brain!), you must see your physician. Most presume a headache is just a headache. But if never evaluated/worked up for causes, particularly if pattern changes, or become more severe, it needs to be. Must rule out brain tumor. If no cause found, rx. Read more

Constant right frontal headache for 12 days; ibuprofen does nothing for it. Nothing makes it better, worse in the a.M.Face is 1/2 hot and 1/2 cold.

Chronic headache: If maximum dose of Ibuprofen does not control your headache, you need to see your doctor or neurologist for comprehensive exam and possibly diagnostic testing. It could just be migraine headaches, stress, cluster, tumor etc- hard to say without exam and additional information Read more

Night before last I began cold/sinus symptoms: congestion, frontal headache, earache, and jaw/tooth ache. I'm 30 wks pregnant. What can I take safely?

Night before last I began cold/sinus symptoms: congestion, frontal headache, earache, and jaw/tooth ache. I'm 30 wks pregnant. What can I take safely?

Multiple Issues?: Sounds like you could potentially have multiple issues going on, but possibly a good sinus infection. Pregnant women can typically take Tylenol (acetaminophen) but not NSAID's (aspirin, ibuprofen, naproxen). Antibiotics that are in pregnancy category B are considered safe such as penicillin & amoxicillin. This assumes you have no allergies, but you need to see a doctor/dentist for a diagnosis. Read more
